Happy Friday! Today we have some fresh, colorful, spring-y inspiration to share with you.
I sent this inspiration piece to three of our MME designers and asked them to create layouts based on something in the photo.
I think you'll love what they came up with!

Tina says: I love color inspiration challenges. I love searching through my stash looking for just the perfect colors and design elements for a color inspiration challenge. For my layout, I used product from all four Collectable ranges to complete my assignment.
Besides using the colors in the color inspiration photo(s), I also used design elements from the color inspiration photos:
1. Diagonal design from the dress,
2. Round/Flower shaped elements from the cake and necklace, and
3. Stacking/Layering from the green dishes.
To create the diagonal design, I started with a diagonal background patterned paper. (Super easy, huh?) Next, I digitally cut a diagonal shape and layered all 3 colors behind the shape for a fun and interesting element.
I used a large, oversized flower shape brad for my Round/Flower shape design element. I couldn't find the perfect brad shape and colors, so I actually mixed 2 different brads from 2 separate Collectable collections to make my finished brad.
Tip: I didn't want to repeat the same yellow patterned paper behind my die cut title, so I cut a section from the Tiny Word sticker sheet. The color was exactly what I was looking for, so I sprayed a different shade of yellow and white mist to change the color of the stickers. Perfect way to stretch my stash, yet still follow the Color Inspiration challenge.
In order to achieve this color palette I pulled product from three different lines: Collectable-Memorable, The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine, and Find Your Wings-Up and Away. These all help to not only fulfill the color scheme but also the feminine and frilly feel of the inspiration photos!
Aren't these three layouts gorgeous?
